What to watch and review on Monday, July 3.
Coronation Street (ITV, 7.30 and 8.30pm) Amid the perpetual turbulence of Weatherfield’s swirling mass of on-off romances, Chesney and Sinead predictably decide to give their rancid relationship another go. Only for fall-guy Chesney to get stabbed with a broken bottle in the bistro. Love hurts. Meanwhile, labouring under the delusion that he’s the only one who knows about Aidan’s not-so-secret affair with Maria, Adam attempts to blackmail Aidan for £5,000. Good luck with that.
EastEnders (BBC1, 8pm) Taylor girl Bernadette is caught playing truant, Abi turns on the charm with strange Steven, new nanny Ingrid starts looking after Jack’s kids... and corporate pub boss Fi makes her presence felt at the Queen Vic. Exciting stuff.
The Betrayed Girls (BBC1, 8.30pm) Hot on the heels of the Beeb’s acclaimed drama Three Girls, this powerful 90 minute documentary chronicles the real-life story of the Rochdale sex scandal. After 12 Asian men were found guilty of grooming, rape and trafficking, the harrowing testimonies of the victims, police and social services reveal how the escalating horror was systematically ignored.
Fearless (ITV, 9pm) Human rights lawyer Emma Banville (Helen McCrory) goes to court in a bid to clear hapless Kevin Russell of a murder he did not commit. But her crusade for justice has placed her in mortal danger.
Ripper Street (BBC2, 9.30pm) The halfway point of the final series sees Augustus Dove hiding his murdering brother Nathaniel in the wilderness of the Hackney Marshes. But even in his rustic solitude, the brooding killer struggles to control his dangerous urges.
